      what about it? you still can. but most people probably don't run them because there's other better methods, how do you not know this? but nothing stopping you from still doing this
      >Chrome blocked outgoing access to port 21
      what the frick does this even mean? ftp has nothing to do with browsers
      >FTP died like 20 years ago, op
      ftp is still used, and can be still used, what are you talking about?

      It means he's a mobilegay and too lazy to install any ftp-supporting app.

      It used to be that you could just enter ftp://domain.tld in your browser's address bar, enter the username and password, and get access to the files on there. It was tons more accessible, meaning it was a lot more worthwhile to host a (semi-)public FTP. But why bother now? Nobody's going to download a client just to see if there's anything interesting among the handful of files you're hosting.

        Wait when did browsers stop supporting ftp?

          A couple years back.

          anonymous ftp sites are becoming rare. private ftp is where the action is.

          chrome doesn't dictate internet standards.

          [...]
          how does an internet protocol "die" exactly?

          [...]
          nobody asked or cares

          are you fricking stupid, fatty? this how ftp has always worked. people only made it available via www port 80/443 to make it more convenient for web browser toddlers. ftp was never meant to be a www service, it just became that due to browsers supporting ftp. you have it completely backwards. the absolute state of zoomy zoomzooms born yesterday.

          You're a moron. I hosted an FTP server 15 years ago and at that point their only relevance was that they could be accessed by browsers. Barely anybody used FTP via dedicated clients anymore.

          >chrome doesn't dictate internet standards.
          Have you been sleeping under a rock for the past ten years? Google is in almost full control of web standards nowadays, and fricking everything goes via the browser now. (That, or a proprietary app which under the hood is essentially a standalone browser.)

      FTP died like 20 years ago, op

      how does an internet protocol "die" exactly?

      >ftp is still used
      I don't think I've connected to an FTP server a single time in the last two years. These days, it's been largely replaced by SFTP and WebDAV.

        People start grooming each other on discord and don't know what filesystems are, thanks to the iphone.

        sftp is a subset of ftp, it's just secure through ssh

          It's deader than the anhero iPod guy.
          >sftp is a subset of ftp, it's just secure through ssh
          No, it's not. You could tunnel FTP over SSH if you wanted to, but SFTP is a different protocol. You are probably confusing it with FTPS which is FTP running over TLS.

        mobilegays should be range banned forever from IQfy. moblieSHITS should not even be allowed to view the site, let alone post. i should talk to the mods about making this happen, mobilegays have enjoyed the same privileges as regular humans for far too long.

    Anonymous FTP is deader than disco, anon. The web replaced it back when we invented the internet for the second time.

    I haven't seen an FTP in years. The only ones I've dealt with are internal corporate FTPs.

    Google search became dogshit. Remember when you used to just be able to search filetype:flac and downloads as much music as you wanted?
